This is a record of my journey into old school shaving: Double Edged Safety Razors, Shaving Brushes and Soaps, and eventually, maybe even a straight razor. My morning shave has become my zen time, where nothing matters but the lather and the blade.

Merkur Trimming Razor
Someday I will own this. It is absolutely perfect. It is a very small razor that is designed for trimming beards, moustaches, and eyebrows. All I need it for is the little tight corners under my nose - the very upper edge of the moustache that is almost impossible to get with a cartrige blade and very difficult with a Safety Razor. It wouldn't get a whole lot of use, but it would be used every day. Whoever thought of this needs a Nobel Peace Prize (since they just hand them out anyway).
